When Megan winds up her music box, she's surprised to hear a tiny voice calling to her over the tinkling melody - it's the Fairy Queen from the Land of Eight Kingdoms, a magical place far away! The Fairy Queen has been imprisoned in the Magic Secrets Box by an evil enchanter, and needs Megan's help to break the spell...Megan is sent to the Kingdom of Golden Spires, where she meets the wilful young princess Paloma, who is preparing to take part in the annual jousting competition, despite her parents' disapproval. But just as the tournament begins, some terrifying dragons swoop down and kidnap Megan, mistaking her for the princess! Are they acting on Sorcero's orders? And how will Megan get herself out of this one?
